The founders of R.S. Foundation Systems have several decades of combined experience in the foundation drilling industry in Western Canada. Incorporated in 2008, and based out of Calgary, RSFS is a geotechnical construction contractor serving Western Canada’s residential, commercial, institutional, infrastructure and industrial markets. Originally, RSFS focused on underpinning and foundation retrofit projects. Today, we are capable of undertaking foundation drilling and geotechnical construction projects of nearly any type and scale.
The majority of the founding partners are still actively involved in the day-to-day operation of the company.
Our specialty is installing new deep foundation elements in tight working areas for retrofit or repair projects. This skill set is well suited to “greenfield” projects as well. To accomplish our work, the core business of R.S. Foundation Systems is the design, supply and installation of a variety of geotechnical constructions, including micropiles, helical piles and anchors, compaction and consolidation grouting, soil and rock anchors, soil nails, etc. We specialize in Restricted Access High Capacity (RAHCTM) piling systems.
In addition to our core service offerings, and resulting from a motivation to serve our clients, who often prefer a single source contractor, RSFS has evolved to provide many other related services. This includes large diameter cast-in-place piles, secant wall piles, earthworks, geotechnical investigation drilling, concrete cutting and coring, water management installations, waterproofing, landscaping, concrete flatwork and formwork, structural design, steel design and fabrication, welding, etc. These services are either performed in-house or by subcontracted firms, usually as part of a larger contract that includes our core business.
RSFS continues its design/build roots to this day, enabled by a diverse network of industry APEGA engineering partners familiar with both design principles and RSFS design and implementation methodologies. Having developed several proprietary methods and systems to address the unique geology and market of our service area, RSFS is well suited to perform well in this marketplace.
R.S. Foundation Systems is committed to providing high quality, high value-added materials and services to our clients. We are a professional, safe, flexible and innovative company endeavoring to provide cost effective “turn-key” solutions to foundation support challenges. The quality of our work and the safety of all stakeholders are considered of paramount importance.
We take special pride when exceeding client expectations by overcoming tricky foundation support challenges. We excel when encountering foundations in need of stabilization or lifting, installation of new foundations in restricted access locations, and when upgrades to existing foundation capacities are required.
